Celebrate the Texas Gulf Coast Independent School Districts
“Go Public Gulf Coast was created in an effort to showcase the wonderful things happening in our public schools and the opportunities we have available to ALL students. We [ISDs] have much to be proud of and it’s time that we educate the public with facts that demonstrate the effectiveness and long-lasting impact our schools have on every student, every day.”
-Bob Covey, Go Public Gulf Coast Board President
We live in a very diverse society and in that classroom we will have people coming from all social-economic backgrounds; speaking different languages; practicing different religions, but everyone is there to learn. In that public school setting you learn how to live. I learned those principles and values from the public-school system. I’m Houston Mayor, Sylvester Turner, a product of the public-school system and I urge you to go public!
-Sylvester Turner, Mayor of Houston, Texas
